What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic, is used to heal the body naturally, without the use of medications or surgery. By manipulating the spinal column, chiropractic assists and promotes healing to the entire central nervous system that is attached along the spinal column. The central nervous system is connected to the tissues and organs throughout the human body. Chiropractic encourages proper placement of the bones, allowing consistent blood flow in and out of the organs and tissues of the body, improving a person’s overall health. When there is spinal misalignment, it can block blood flow to certain areas of the body, causing pain and sometimes developing disease.
Keystone Chiropractic encourages proper exercise as well as eating a healthy diet. While heredity may play a key role in a patient’s issues, taking care of the body through diet and exercise may help to undo the condition, and improve the patient’s quality of life. We also encourage patients to combine massage therapy with their spinal adjustments for lasting results.
The art of chiropractic is the technique used to free the nervous system, so the body’s inborn intelligence can provide healing naturally.
This is standard osseous (bony) adjusting of the full spine. There are some 58 “set-ups” for correction of the spine (called Spinal Manipulation), and some 140 for correction of extremities (called extra-spinal manipulation), such as used for knee, ankle, elbow, shoulder, and wrist.
Gonstead Technique A full spine, specific technique using a particular protocol and very thorough chiropractic diagnostic procedures, including palpation, spinographs, instrumentation and the use of individual Gonstead tables.
A table-assisted technique for the full spine with standard protocols, using a drop-piece on the Thompson table for the adjustment.
Upper Cervical Technique
Originating with the famous “toggle recoil” of chiropractic’s historical developer, B.J. Palmer, the technique concentrates on correction of a singular vertebra, the atlas and sometimes the axis (C2).
Palmer College teaches both the basic and advanced technique, which uses a percussive instrument to deliver the chiropractic adjustment, and incorporates a specialized diagnostic system.
A spinal technique which utilizes a motorized table to assist in the vertebral correction, in which the adjustment is delivered to the patient during the motion of the table.
An advancement of the original work in trigger points, where the technique is extended so that spinal and other trigger points on the body are located while the patient is led through a range of motion, rather than while static.
